Microsoft brings new ways to pester your coworkers to Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams hits 13 million daily active users, potentially more than Slack

So, these are worrying statistics for Slack, with Microsoft apparently making good progress, despite the fact that many respondents to the survey didn't think Teams was actually as good as Slack.

Microsoft Teams now has more than 13 million daily users. In comparison, Slack, which went public in June, reported in January that it has over 10 million daily active users.

I suppose it's possible that Slack could have picked up three million users over the past five months although given its growth curve over the past several years, it seems unlikely.

Also, Microsoft plans to deliver a set of predefined "Policy Packages" in the Teams Admin Center for IT pros that will let them specify various Teams functions for end users based on their roles in the organization.

In a rare statistic reveal, the company revealed that Team saw 19 million users on a weekly basis in the short time that it has been on the market since coming out two years ago.

NFL Looking At 18-Game Season With 16 Games Per Player Limit
The current CBA will expire in 2021. "For us, it comes down to who players are as men, and is it good for us", Smith told ESPN . The NFLPA will fight hard to keep the season at 16 games, regardless of the olive branch of giving every player two games off.

Microsoft also unveiled a range of new features for Teams at Inspire on Thursday, continuing its efforts to attract front-line or firstline workers to the platform. It has also added WhatsApp-like read receipts. As The Verge pointed out, Microsoft bundles Teams with Office 365, giving the service a clear advantage with big business. Today, it is rolling out what it's calling "announcements", which allows important news to be highlighted in a channel.

A new Time Clock feature will allow employees to clock in and out of work shifts and break from their mobile app. Support for geo-fencing means that an employee may be required to be at a designated location before clocking in. Possibly, but new priority notifications that ping your phone every two minutes for up to 20 minutes may not be especially welcomed. Microsoft introduced Teams to customers on Office 365 subscriptions in March 2017 after which added a free version in July 2018.

Partner Perks The Microsoft Inspire event for partners starts on Monday, and so the announcement included details regarding Teams "ecosystem" enhancements for partners. Indeed, partners are seeing increased interest in Teams. It's also partnering on Teams with call recording companies, such as "ASC, NICE and Verint".

"What we see is that a lot of our clients have deployed version one of their Teams, where the deployment is really nearly a straight replacement for Skype", La Palme said.

Microsoft Teams provides a complete online meeting solution that includes online meetings, live broadcasts, Microsoft Team Rooms, cloud video interoperability and audio conferencing.
